    Cool!

    I have this incredibly long recovery going on right now and can’t tell if I have the RC or latest update. If I interrupt it now, I am afraid I’ll have to start again. Any advice JR?

    Don’t interrupt it. Keep it going, let me know what the results are. Data recovery doesn’t guarantee anything ever. It’s a great success when we can recovery what we were searching for.

    I tried for 5+ days, but I needed my laptop, so I had to interrupt it. The disk hasn’t been touched in read/write way since I lost my data and I am recovering to a different disk, so hopefully I can restart when the RC is released.

    Just to add to the time frame discussion: I’m just over 12 hrs in to a deep scan of a 500 GB external drive, connected via firewire 400. Currently 0.58% complete with estimated 2135 hrs to go. This seems long, but if it works it’s worth it.

    For context, I think drive failure was due either to corruption by improper device removal or updates to system software with ensuing issues. I’m using an older Western Digital drive, and I recently updated to Mac OS 10.5.8 from 10.4.11 (finally) and then the issues began with a drive than had hitherto been problem free.

    That’s of course not that good. If the numbers don’t change, email me. I have another idea for you

    Hi there,

    I have an estimated time to a deep scan of 580h, in 1h30 it scanned 0.19%. I really want to go on but I have one question, the volume of the drive (WD) I’m trying to fix shows 2TB but this does not match the real size of the original drive which was 160GB , have you ever seen this before?

    Not sure. Which version and build of Disk Drill are you using now? If you keep getting inconsistent results from Disk Drill, please, send us the logs as described here (/help/troubleshooting-basics/) to help@cleverfiles.com
